Orangey-red in color, Cayenne pepper is a ground, moderately hot and pungent chili pepper. Not to be confused with Paprika which, although related, has a real mild flavor in comparison.

Cayenne peppers can provide a variety of health benefits, including:
Pain Relief - Like other spicy peppers, cayenne peppers contain Capsaicin, the compound that gives them their “heat”. Applying heat typically helps to alleviate pain.

Metabolism Boost - Capsaicin increases the amount of heat that your body produces, boosting your metabolism and causing you to burn more calories.

Digestive Health - The pepper may help to increase the production of digestive fluid, sending enzymes to the stomach to aid in digestion.

Cayenne pepper registers 30,000 - 50,000 SHU on the Scoville scale.
